The money paid by the Accomptant to the British Regiments for subsistence and pay and allowed in the preceding Accompts for 1707 to 1710 and the sum of 6,992l. 11s. 6¾d. for the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment in 1705 are to be charged and surcharged likewise.
The sum of 1,718l. for Additional Levy money allowed in 1710 is to be charged to the respective Regiments and set against their claim for levy money.
Several other sums appear likewise chargeable.
The sum of 764l. 13s. 3¼d. paid to Messrs. Man and Maccullock for clothing the Earl of Barrymore's Regiment formed into a Regiment of Dragoons under Col. Pearce is to be charged to the Regiment and surcharged on the Paymaster General in such accompt where the full pay of the said Regiment shall be allowed.

The sum of 2,365l. 15s. 5½d. paid in 1710 as a Bounty to the Non-Commissioned Officers and Soldiers of the Foot and of the Train of Artillery that were at the Battle of Saragossa in consideration of the loss of their knapsacks and other baggage, destroyed by the Enemy, and of the wear of shoes and stockings on their marches before the battle and to Madrid thereafter is to be charged as an Extraordinary of the War.
Further memorandum. The sum of 6,558l. was paid in 1705 for 499 horses delivered in Portugal to Maj. Gen. Harvey's Regiment of Horse and Lord Raby's Regiment of Dragoons.

This matter remains to be adjusted on clearing the said Regiments.
The sum of 129l. 17s. 8d. expended by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Luellin on the recruit horses sent from Ireland in 1705 remains to be adjusted.
The sum of 26,712l. was paid in 1710 to the Agents of the six Regiments of Dragoons raised in Portugal to purchase 247 horses for each Regiment.

The sum of 2,036l. 2s. 11¼d. paid in 1710 to Admiral Somelsdyke and other commanders of Dutch ships for freight and provisions for 1,582 men of the German Regiment of Horse under Lieut. Gen. Eck, transported from Italy to Catalonia, is to be charged to His Imperial Majesty.

Clothing provided in 1709 by John Robyns amounting to 31,663l. 12s. 9d. for the King of Spain's Forces has been charged to the said King's subsidy, but having been consigned to Henry Vincent, then Commissary, he is to be charged therewith.

Of the sum of 7,887l. 13s. 7½d. paid Ralph Bucknall for the Prisoners taken at Almanza, allowed in the Accompt for 1707 a memorandum to the Accompt for 1709 shows that 7,660l. 18s. 2d. only has been answered by him.
By the same Accompt it appears that the sum of 8,750l. has been paid to Brig.
